Intuit Practice Management powered by Karbon connects to your email provider, synchronizing your emails so you can view and action them in Triage.
When you clear an email it will not delete the email in your email client, but it does do a few things:
It removes the email from Triage.
It lists the email in Cleared Items, so that you can view it or bring it back into Triage.
It moves the email from your email inbox to the Archive folder for Office 365 and Exchange, or the All Mail folder for Gmail.
